MODERN COMFORTS, PERIOD CHARM & IDYLIC LIVING

Welcome home

Presenting the Railway Store built in the early 1900s, the home has been recently renovated with care & respect to preserve the history & charm, whilst introducing modern comforts.  Set on an easy care, manicured acre surrounded by stunning rural views.

The outlook from the dining, casual living & screened verandah is absolutely breathtaking.

Currently three bedroom, two bathroom with the front of the home unused.  The residence could easily become five bedrooms with a large second living space, or totally self contained living.

Freestone Road is a popular tourist drive providing the opportunity to bring the the Railway Store back to serving the community as a retail space, cafe, art gallery, events venue or bed & breakfast.

Opening in 1910, along with the commissioning of the railway line, the Railway Store soon became the hub of the community in Freestone. Always a home, initially there was just the store at the front, however not long after WW2, the post office and telephone exchange was added. 3 families derived their living from the store and enjoyed many happy years in the home before it eventually closed in 1973 and has been a private dwelling since. The home and store have many stories to tell, with a wonderful history and many examples of developing innovations and changing lifestyle.

Only at an inspection will you experience the charm, history & peace of this magical property.
